Day 36 Florence. Today we began the day by getting pastries and coffee at Gilli, a nice shop in the Republic square. We then lined up to see the cathedral part of the Duomo. Ater this we decided to explore the exposed section of the San Lorenzo market where they were selling many food and drink items. We then grabbed some lunch before climbing to the top of the dome. We visited multiple levels of the dome and then came back down. Once we finished we went back to the hotel to check out and leave for Pisa. We arrived in Pisa and checked into the airbnb. After this we got some great pizza and wine before heading in for the night.
